Fifteenth seeded Bartoli of France will take the court against twentieth seed Belgian, Lisicki. Bartoli is yet to drop a set in this Wimbledon tournament, something she will be looking to maintain. On the other hand, Flipkens who beat the 2011 Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitov has had quite a similar tournament to that of her opponent on the night.

 

Bartoli had a career transformation after last year when she suffered blood clots in both calves. She also lost financial support from the Belgian federation as her rank had stooped so low. This may prove to be an additional drive for her to go all the way.

 

Flipkens has also turned her career around. Last year her rank was so low that she was not given the green flag for the Wimbledon qualifying round and today exactly 12 months later, she is stepping into one of the biggest games of her career.

 

Both these players have not met in the past and hence will be looking at numerous match videos to learn a thing or two about each other.

Flipkens was pushed a long way in her quarter final game which went on for three sets and will be ready for push Bartoli in this match. Bartoli has not played a three setter game, and that could work against her if this game does go on for three sets.
